The much-discussed iPhone SE 4 has been a subject of ongoing speculation. Various rumors have suggested differing timelines for its release—some asserting it will hit the market this year, others predicting next year, and a few asserting it might remain a mere prototype for Apple’s forthcoming modem. The latest rumors, however, indicate that the iPhone SE 4, featuring an adapted iPhone 14 chassis, is in the pipeline.

Contrary to initial assumptions that the iPhone SE 4 would share an identical chassis with the potentially forthcoming iPhone 14, recent information from a MacRumors story challenges this notion. The device has been assigned the identification number “D59” by the company, colloquially referred to as “Ghost” by staff, denoting its code name. It is widely anticipated that Apple will market the iPhone SE 4, also recognized as the iPhone SE 2022, as a budget-friendly smartphone, supplanting the iPhone SE 3.

Historically, all iPhone SE models have adhered to the same design, borrowing from the iPhone 8 chassis. Recognizing the need for a design overhaul, Apple seems poised to depart from this convention.

Reports suggest that the iPhone SE 4 will deviate somewhat from the iPhone 14 chassis. Additional information obtained by the source allows for a comparison of the two chassis designs.

Furthermore, the iPhone SE 4 is expected to weigh slightly less than the iPhone 14. The iPhone 14’s dimensions are 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.8 mm, with a weight of 172 grams. According to the source, the iPhone SE 4 is projected to weigh approximately 165 grams, making it 6-7 grams lighter.

Anticipated features include a single 48-megapixel rear camera, deviating from the dual-camera setup in the iPhone 14. While this modification contributes to the reduced weight, it is expected to enhance the overall camera capabilities compared to previous iPhone SE models.

Distinguishing itself further from the iPhone 14 chassis, the iPhone SE 4 will incorporate an Action Button, adding a unique feature to its design. Additionally, it will replace the Lightning port with a Type-C port, introducing another departure from the iPhone 14. However, the exact release date for this phone remains uncertain.
